Kirkcaldy Away: Saturday 16th March

This Sat 16th March 2019 we travel to Kirkcaldy for what can rightly be billed as the biggest game of the season…. so far! We need the points with games fast running out. If we show the determination and commitment as was shown against Musselburgh we will do well. KO is 3pm at Kirkcaldy. We would encourage as many supporters as possible to make the trip to Fife to cheer on our lads. C’mon boys you can do it! Best of luck to you all and to the coaching staff.

The Irish Lunch at the Royal Scots Club

Another great lunch at the Royal Scots Club prior to the Scotland v Ireland game at Murrayfield. Another sell out lunch for the 11th year in a row. The speaker on this occasion was the talented Gordon Hamilton who played 10 times for Ireland. He was very entertaining and it was great to listen to his recollections of his rugby career. He thanked the Club for looking after his son Patrick while at Dundee University and played for us which was heartfelt and welcome. A great cross section of supporters, members and sponsors enjoyed a good lunch and of course, each others company. We look forward to doing it all again next year which coincides with the 140th anniversary of the Rugby Club. Something special is planned so book up early….its always sold out! Thanks to all who support this lunch and all other events for the Rugby Club.
